Start to Compile the Home Movie
The first thing you’ll want to do is compile your home movie, but before that you should launch Movavi Video Editor and select the ‘Create project in full feature mode’ option. In the editor’s interface you can then click on the ‘Add Media Files’ button and select the video clips that you want to use in your home movie.
All the clips that you select will appear in Movavi Video Editor’s ‘Timeline’, and you can drag them around so that they are in the right order. Additionally, you can trim out any parts that you don’t need by moving the marker and clicking on the ‘Split’ icon, then selecting the segment you want to remove and hitting the ‘Delete’ key on your keyboard.
By the time you’re done you should have compiled your home movie – but that’s really just the first step.

Make no mistake there are lots of other features that you could use to enhance the quality of your videos, fix any issues that are present, apply special effects and filters, add captions, and more. At the end of the day it is up to you to decide which of Movavi Video Editor’s features you’d like to use, and apply them to your video.
